Spurs are expected to provide an update on Monday or Tuesday, but it is club policy not to put a timeframe on injuries. With Betfair having enhanced the price on away win to 25/1, you should probably consider backing Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Nobody really expects Spurs to make zero signings in the transfer window, but at the time of this writing the only signing that looks likely is Ross Barkley from Everton, whom Pochettino seems to think could be Mousa Dembele's replacement in Spurs' midfield.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino insists that the club will bring in new players before the end of the transfer window.

While remaining hopeful of further additions before the end of the month, Benitez reaffirmed his commitment to the club despite his disappointment.

"I think we're improving, we're learning and the evolution of the team is fantastic, but now I think we have ahead a big challenge because it's not only to fight with the big clubs. but another thing is to try to make home, Wembley", he said. We'll see. We are so close to making it happen.

"I am not saying I am really pleased with everything because it's not true, but I am not saying that I will not do my best to be as high as possible in the table".

Trippier limped off during Spurs' pre-season friendly against Serie A outfit Juventus and, after undergoing a scan, the club confirmed the England international's injury on their official Twitter account.

Striker Dwight Gayle's chances of playing hang in the balance with a hamstring issue also potentially keeping him out.

Erik Lamela (hips), Georges-Kevin Nkoudou (foot), Rose (knee) and Kieran Trippier (ankle) are all missing for Spurs.

And Rose would not rule out a move to the Premier League champions, despite their fierce rivalry with Spurs.

He has since scored 21, 25 and 29 goals over the last three Premier League seasons, with his tally in 2016-17 coming from just 30 games.

Whether or not that can be fixed this season, seeing Spurs challenge on all fronts and not collapse in one area, will largely depend on keeping Harry Kane fit.

Tottenham kicks off their 2017-18 campaign on Sunday against Newcastle.

Spurs have won twice in ten attempts since the new Wembley reopened in 2007 and struggled there when it became their home for European football last season.

Pochettino refused to give away his contingency plan for replacing Trippier for this weekend but should Tottenham delve into the transfer market, teams will know they are desperate and charge more than what the player is actually worth. Sign up to play now!
